The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Prettiest Garden in Worcester!

Last night, PTC's gardeners took the evening off to visit Jacki and Sneaky Pete's really beautiful garden which opened for the evening for the NGS.  It was a lovely evening and...........WOW, it all looked so inviting and tranquil!  The planting is breathtaking and it's so secretive and shady.  I've always loved it to pieces.  In some ways, it was a bit of a reunion as there were both AOS and NGS friends and colleagues visiting so lots of chatting and catching up...........and delicious wine!!

Taking photos was a tad tricky as it was full of people and the evening light was low.  Their (not so) new folly is AMAZING and we loved the oak frame and the herringbone brickwork.  This garden is WELL worth a visit.  More photos (none of which do it any justice whatsoever) can be seen at:
